Jesse James is allegedly planning another trip down the aisle. Sources claim that Hollywood’s resident bad boy has asked his newest ladylove, Alexis DeJoria to marry him. That he knew her for less than two months before proposing has certainly raised eyebrows, as he doesn’t have the best track record when it comes to establishing deep ties with women. Nonetheless, the length of their courtship is just one reason why this romance spells trouble.
She’s an heiress.
Few people may have heard of Alexis DeJoria; but plenty have heard of her father John Paul DeJoria, founder of the Paul Mitchell hair care empire. She’s pretty much the complete opposite of what we expect an heiress to be. This might be considered a weird match if not for the fact that she’s got the tats, the attitude, and a seriously impressive career as a drag racer. Is Jesse just hooking up with Alexis for status sake? While James doesn’t strike us as the money-grubbing type, his swift proposal raises a few eyebrows.
Once a cheater, always a cheater?
He famously cheated on America’s Sweetheart; the world has moved on from it, but will ultimately never forget. Then he was linked to Kat Von D, living out their on-again/off-again relationship on Twitter. Once they were through, it was later revealed that he also cheated on her with multiple women. Clearly, James’ bad boy reputation precedes him.
Her fans don’t like it.
DeJoria may not have Oscar statues sitting upon her mantle at home. But she’s certainly got fans. And some of them aren’t too pleased with her romantic choice. “I used to admire you. Now I feel sorry for you. Moving in and getting engaged to a guy you’ve been dating a month.” Will her entanglement with Jesse create problems in her career? That’s a tough call. In any event, she’ll become even more famous for having been involved with such a “public figure.”
What about the kids?
Jesse has three children with two different women, and a fractured relationship with their former stepmother (Sandra Bullock)—to whom they got pretty attached. DeJoria’s 9 year-old daughter would certainly have an interesting new family should the nuptials between Jesse and Alexis actually take place. But considering the revolving door of women with whom he’s been involved, James’ love life must be confusing for his own children. Introducing a stepsibling into the mix might complicate things.
A Bright Spot…
One thing that Jesse has on his side is his ability to choose women with similar interests. DeJoria isn’t exactly a high-profile celebrity. But the combination of pedigree with an extremely edgy lifestyle has got to be intoxicating to him. The only problem is what happens when “life” sets in and he gets bored.
Jesse claims to be condemned by the public because of what he did to Bullock. We’ve moved on from that fiasco. But the focus is now placed squarely on a man who has a rather short attention span when it comes to the women he “loves.”
